Stacey and I have been surrounded with people recently who have a real hunger for the Lord and I felt led to share with you what God put on my heart about being Hungry for the Lord. When we plant seed there are different types of ground.
Jesus says in Matthew 13:3-9
“A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came up ate it up. Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.”
I shared with our amazing Welcome Team at Turning Point this past Sunday, which in serving if you are doing it to fill a need your hunger to serve will not last. If you are doing it to be a part of the opportunity of a lifetime and know that you are serving to be a part of what Jesus died for on the cross “His Church” then your hunger will last. We must know that on based on this the gates of hell will not prevail against our church because it was part of Jesus’ redemptive plan when He died on the cross. He is coming back for his bride, the church.
This week I really want us to examine our soil and decide where we are, path soil, rocky soil, thorny soil or good soil.
